Can you tell us about a current/ongoing project that you’re excited about?
Who is your favorite author?
Recently, I wrote an article for LitHub on feminist science fiction of the 70s and 80s, so my mind is currently full of the brilliant work of writers such as Joanna Russ, Elizabeth A. Lynn, Octavia Butler, and Vonda McIntyre.
What is your favorite poem/essay/book?
Harriet McBryde Johnson’s Too Late to Die Young was essential to having a solid sense of myself as a writer.
What inspires you to write?
It makes me feel good. Even when I’m in a despair of “I’m no good and never will be” torment, it feels good.
What is your favorite sweet?
My poet friend, Aliesa, makes a perfect key lime tart.
Thank you, Sandra, for taking the time to reconnect with us. We look forward to seeing more of your work in the future!
